"My parents have always said that I could draw before I could talk. There was never any doubt in my mind that I would realize my life-long dream of being a painter. Oils are my medium and portraits and abstract expressionism are my passion. I've been experimenting more with painting outdoors."

Patty Rae is also available to teach workshops in color theory and oil portraits. Inquire via email to paintercast@yahoo.com
